The word "Generalife" has been translated as "Garden of Paradise". Yes, it is paradise. I love Spain and the ambiance. This is my 2nd visit to this garden. It is serene and peaceful. Water sounds are everywhere. I hope to visit Spain more.

Absolutely beautiful in autumn. Wouldn't have missed this - so interesting due to having things pointed out by our guide.

Definitely worth visiting as part of an Alhambra visit, beautiful gardens and water features. The roses smelt divine in the sunshine.

The Generalife is part of the Alhambra, and included in the ticket. Prepare for a walk from the main venue (it can be hot).

Purchase your ticket ahead of time, and bring your I.D. as we were asked for our I.D.s upon entering a few of the inside attractions. We spent 4 hours in the Alhambra and Generalife, and the walking was worth all the incredible views, architecture and history. Too much to describe; you simply have to experience it.
You can buy a ticket separately for entry to the Generalife only but most of people buy the General Entry ticket (€14,85) which gives access to the whole Alhambra complex.
Make sure you keep your entry ticket handy because you will need to show it at the Nasrid Palace and Alcazabar as well.

As amazing as the Alhambra is, the Generalife gardens are even more amazing. They are incredible. The gardens offer amazing views of the city. Don't miss Generalife!

This is a must see when visiting the Alhambra so make sure your ticket includes entry. A tranquil space of stunning beauty, enhanced by the fact that crowds are managed to allow everyone time and space to take it all in.
